Eco Inhibitors was established in 2011 based on research work within the area of hydrate inhibition chemicals started in 2008 by Professor Malcolm Kelland. Since then the company has gradually been developed based on significant support from the industry and from public funding schemes. In 2012 the external investor Wellwork Innovation came onboard playing an important role in the further growth of the company. Eco Inhibitors has access to, and utilises, state of the art laboratory equipment for development and testing of the various products. In 2019 Eco Inhibitors has been acquired by Italmatch Chemicals – Advanced Water Solutions.
